Anyone following Meet the Press host Chuck Todd on Twitter may have got an eyeful Friday morning when he inadvertently tweeted a photo of his crotch.
Todd snapped the photo to prove that he is wearing a seatbelt when broadcasting from a bus that’s taking him to states with tightly contested midterm election races.
“Folks. I am wearing a seatbelt,” Todd first tweeted to his concerned followers. “It blends in with my dark jacket. And I have the strap portion under my arm when I’m turned toward camera.”
Todd sent out a second tweet that said, “This is why you may not see the seatbelt on cam. But rest assured. I am wearing one.” Included was the photo of a seatbelt apparently strapped over Todd’s lap but also a closeup view of his jean-clad crotch.
“Hey Chuck Todd, You’ve been hacked by Anthony Weiner,” one person replied.
“Wow. Disgusting angle. Unfollow,” said another.
“This seems inappropriate,” said a third.
Todd declined to comment for this post on the record.
We really could go on and on. But here’s the tweet.
